a budding quilter

I think I mentioned to you that my 8 yr old grandson has decided that he's old enough to sew on my machine by himself (I do insist that I am in the room with him).  This weekend, he wanted to play with my charm squares and sewed up this cute little piece.  He is finally starting to sew right sides together!

We had my daughter's 3 kids for the weekend and my son came over as well so we had all 4 grandkids.  I went and picked up my mom from the board and care home so she'd have a chance to spend some time with the kids before I move her up to Bend in a week. Here she is with the kids.

I did a little sewing while my grandson was sewing and whipped up another bag.  It was a friend's birthday recently and I'm going to give her this Hawaiian bag!  I hope she likes it!


  1. The grandson sewing is precious. The birthday bag is so cute. So glad that your mother got to spend some time with the kids. Adorable photograph.

  2. Your grandson did a terrible job! The bag is adorable and I'm sure your friend will love it. So glad your mom as able to spend time with her great grands! Wonderful memories to make!
